The chef uses fresh local produce from the restaurant's own farm, but this bistro-style café across from the University of Oregon is best known for its authentic Italian cuisine, with a heavy emphasis on fresh local seafood. The menu changes according to the season, but staples include delicious salads and soups, ravioli, grilled chicken, pizza, and sandwiches. At dinner they feature daily lamb and seafood specials that are well worth asking about. The dining room, shaded
by blossoming cherry trees in the spring, has a quiet, understated European feel, and there's outdoor seating on the patio in good weather. Breakfast and Sunday brunch are served.
